One inch is an awful large discrepancy for this to be attributed to wheel dish, not impossible but I'd suspect the frame is bent. If you have another (good) wheel to try, that'll narrow it down.
edit: unless by single track you mean single speed, some folks convert to single speed and re-space the rear axle to adjust the chainline on a freewheel hub. If this is done you must correct the dish to re-center the rim in the frame.
btw: if the frame is indeed bent that much, it's probably not safe to ride.
